Health Query

I tore my posterior horn of medial meniscus few days ago (grade 3). My doctor recommended physiotherapy after clinical inspection. My understanding for doing physiotherapy is making the muscles around the hips, quads, hamstring etc stronger so that there wouldn't be much stress to the torn meniscus. But once we stop doing physiotherapy, won't the muscles become weaker again? As we are not training them and this in turn would cause the pain to come back. Can someone let me know how physiotherapy performs in the long run?
